checked shirt

Checked Out...

Wednesday, October 06, 2010











Checked Shirt: Daves, Bow Belt: Miss Selfridge, Skirt: Topshop, vest underneath: H&M,
pink Brogues: c/o Schuh, pink clutch: btq in NY, Rings: heirloom, Topshop & Editor.

Sometimes there is nothing more comfy than stealing my boyfriends clothes! They are like comfort clothing! So when Dave bought this shirt in River Island I already had outfits planned so I could steal it. Its like a flannel material so it is so warm and although its too big on me nipped in with a waist belt and rolled up sleeves I think works.

Thanks for all the lovely comments on my new layout, a few people have said the main text font is slightly too small, Id thought that too and promise to fix this over the weekend. If you think anything else needs changed or added please let me know, your opinions mean alot to me :)
Im also considering a slight blog shake up..with monthly posts on certain topics and more regularity. I find it hard blogging so much with working full time but Im gonna try and work a blogging time table out! So if there is anything you would like to see more of on my blog or topics on fashion beauty or anything! Please let me know!
P.P.S Hair dying turned out great last week! more rusty red than auburn but I love it. Ill take close up photos in the next day or two for you guys to see.

  1. Lady, you've created a very new way to wear this kind of shirts! My boyfriend is way too big for me so I can't steal his clothes but I have a man's shirt in my wardrobe and have difficulties finding creative ways to dress it. So this has been very useful! Thanks a lot!!!

  6. Your font looks fine for me. I think Mac users always see text smaller than PC users (which I'm a PC user) but maybe I'm wrong there.

    I love your outfit.
    How in the world do you get all your outfit entries lined up like that when I click on outfits??? That's awesome.

  8. I've got a flannel shirt on today and I totally fail by style comparison. Perhaps belting is the answer..

  11. Hi Vicki! I think your hair turned out lovely! And that little belt just really makes the outfit. I like the new layout too, I like the pictures better that size because it's faster to load and I think it's a bit neater. The only suggestion I have is to just make sure all your punctuation in the text is correct. Maybe I am just picky but I think it makes a good impression. I also think the text size is fine as it is :)

  20. I love this outfit! Why is it that boys' clothing is always so much softer than ladies'? I always end up stealing my boyfriends pajamas to sleep in (and lounge in) because they are ridiculously soft!

    I love the outfit posts you do now. Keep it up!
